The Xindi ships always signal a departure from classical Star Trek design whenever they make an appearance in the collection (Check out my reviews of the Xindi-Insectoid and Xindi-Aquatic ships to see what the other Xindi ships are like).

Well its been some time since I last posted a review and I now have several models demanding my attention. We’re now onto issue 80, a full ten issues over the original run and many more still to come.

Now we never got to see it in action in Voyager […]Read more "Aeroshuttle"

Discussed occasionally on Twitter and Facebook so not a big surprise 86: Gorn Ship, from TOS, remastered. Again, we knew this was due. 87: UTS Aeon, from […]Read more "Issue 85 to 90 News"

Looking back at my past reviews reminded me that I should point out that you can access a list of all the reviews dating back to August 2013 by clicking the ‘burger’/menu button in the top right […]Read more "Romulan Shuttle"
